Does anyone know a source for these Lighters? I don't sell many, but occasionally get a decent sized order. Coastal are not stocking The 10 Packs I usually buy only the 250 Packs which I don't want. I notice RPL Supplies no longer have them in stock either. Thanks in advance............

That is correct Ian. Zippo has a patent on the "arcuate" shape and went after everyone. Although we at one time carried lighters that did not infringe on that, it did become too problematic and the lighters were dropped.

That being said, there are still some (mostly overseas) that do sell blanks, but just as a fair warning, I did hear from retailers that they too had been contacted by Zippo so everyone should exercise caution when it comes to lighters.
